Proud Mama

I am a proud mama every morning, but especially this morning.  Last night, Wendy’s first ever produced script, “The Truth Below”, aired on MTV.  As an insider, I know how long and how hard she worked on this screenplay, and what a long road it was to production.  Yes, Wendy can write, and she was born with a certain degree of natural talent, BUT–and I’ve seen this over and over–talent isn’t worth the proverbial hill of beans without WORK, without dedication and persistence in the face of adversity.  She’s been hard at it for years, my friends.  That’s what makes me the proudest–that she never gave up.

Now there will be more mountains to climb, just as there are for all of us.  But my girl is on her way, for sure.

I’ve been tweeting more lately–putting up pictures of present art efforts (talk about persisting–this time, it’s in the face of relative incompetence :) )

It’s Friday.  Again.  Where do the days go?

Have a good weekend, my friends.

    Many congrats to your daughter, Linda. So pleased for her – and for you too! (PS I'm your friend from the Civil War battlefields tour, in case you didn't recognise my pen-name!)
